It’s windy, rough and pouring rain, and as you watch your neighbor row “Bowser” to shore, you look at your own canine chum and think—time to pull out the Pet Loo.

petloo

Available in three sizes for small to large dogs, the Pet Loo is billed as “a backyard in a box” and includes synthetic grass, a canted catchment system and a removable “jug.” The key, of course, is convincing your pup to use it (the younger the dog, the easier) so the manufacturer also includes a “Skip to my Loo” attractant to help out. Because storage will inevitably be an issue, you will want to place your Loo out on deck, probably close to the bow. This works well, given that dogs don’t like doing their business where they spend most of their time. Obviously, there are challenges involved in accommodating something like the Pet Loo on a sailboat. But especially on a larger boat with a bit more space, if it saves you some long, wet, nasty trips to shore, it will be worth the effort. From $99.Pup-Pee Solutions
